Manhattan: Body Found in Subway

 

A man was found dead early yesterday inside a little-used section of subway tracks near the Delancey/Essex Street station, the police said. Subway workers found the man about 1 a.m., lying in a niche near the station with his feet touching the electrified third rail, the police said. The man was said to be in his 50s. No foul play was suspected, the police said yesterday.

Perhaps his train just wasn't coming, so he figured he'd improvise, but quickly found out he can't run off of a third rail. Or suicide, depends...

Its little used, meaning not the main line.

It was either the unused track section east of Bowery or the F/JMZ connector line.. there's still a few people living down there.

There are people still living down there, I dont think I have ever seen a homeless person enter a tunnel.
